Mee Siam is a dish of thin rice vermicelli. It is served with spicy, sweet and sour light gravy. The gravy is made from a rempah spice paste, tamarind, taucheo (salted soy bean) as well as chopped peanuts. Mee Siam is typically garnished with tau pok (tofu), scallions, bean sprouts, garlic chives, and lime wedges. However, if you like extra flavour you can add your own ingredient like fish cake slice or begedil (Fried Potato Patty).
